MANCHESTER, N.H. – New York Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand officially entered the ever-expanding pool of the Democratic President's hopeful Sunday, which ended the two months long exploratory phase of her campaign says she is running for the White House to make "big, brave, brave choices."

"Our anthem is asking a question that forces each generation to choose," says Gillibrand in a video released Sunday morning. "Will brave win? Let's answer for ours."

In the video she quotes to vote against bailouts for Wall Street, taking the Pentagon to end sexual assault in the military and transforming a red congressional district blue as examples of her political boldness while in the Washington office.

Gillibrand first announced that she was exploring a bid to President in January.

During the two months of her exploratory phase, she traveled to early voting states to make her presidential campaign; leaned on her role as a mother and uses it as a framework for her political views.
